JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Unlike last year at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, gas prices are on the rise as summer nears in 2021. With prices edging toward $3.00, drivers are not happy about it.
Charlotte Brown and Angela Black will make a big move to Texas in the future. They said they’re dreading the road trip.
“Gas is real expensive. I have to pay about $20, $30, $40 just to fill their tank up. I witnessed someone pay $60 to fill their tank up,” said Brown.
Texas and Mississippi have the lowest gas prices in the country, but it’s still a dollar more a gallon than last year.
